From the 1st of October in New Zealand, the NZ government is going to rise the GST tax from 12.5% to 15%.

But oh well, thats what people get when people vote for a political party thats on the central-right of the political spectrum, because they are apparently trying to "close the average wage gap with Australia", which isn't working.... at all.

For those who don't know what GST is. It means Goods and Services Tax. Its pretty much a tax applied to anything that you purchase.

I have no idea what a GST tax is, but any 15% tax is rediculous.

I also don't know what that tax applies to, but taxes do indeed suck. Still, gotta fund the country somehow. I just wish they were more efficient in the process.

Personally I'd like to see a 50% tax on recreational drugs (like cigarettes) and then lower all the other taxes. It isn't like the people addicted aren't going to pay it, and then those people who aren't trying to kill themselves "because they enjoy it" can reap the benefits.

Wow, SERIOUSLY? A 15% Sales Tax? OUCH. That is Suck-City right there. I feel bad for everyone who has to put up with that. Try that in the US and there would be riots across the country.
